I recently watched the movie ‘The Wedding Singer’ and thinking about this romantic comedy steeped in 80’s magic and wonder, I have to say the best part of the movie was the song he wrote for Linda.
If you haven’t seen this movie with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, I apologize, there are spoilers. Bobby (Sandler) plays a wedding singer who loves what he does and has his heart broken by Linda, his fiancee. She leaves him at the altar on their wedding day.
Once he’s pried from his depressive state to sing at a wedding reception, he sings the song Love Stinks by J. Gells Band. Of course this inspires sympathy from Lucy (Barrymore). She convinces Bobby to help her plan her own wedding.
Anyway. while they’re auditioning bands, Bobby mentions that he wrote a song. After Lucy begs to hear it, Bobby plays. ‘Somebody Kill Me,’ a song that starts off innocuously enough, but quickly turns into something heartbreaking, but truly a song from the heart.
I said all that to ask what are your favorite songs to listen to when love goes wrong? Those songs that say exactly what you’re thinking? A few of my faves, ‘I Wish’ by Lyfe Jennings. The Temptations ‘I Wish it Would Rain’ and ‘Cry for You’ by Jodeci.
So go ahead and share a few of your favorite songs to ease heartbreak.
